Va. Beach not only city after KingsSeptember 11th, 2012 at 11:15 pm by Bruce Rader under Personalities, Sports, Uncategorized
The City of Virginia Beach may have a little competition on its hands if it hopes to get the Sacramento Kings to sign on as the anchor tenant of a proposed arena.
The Seattle City Council says it will work with 44 year old multi-millionaire Chris Hanson to build a new 490 million dollar arena, if Hanson can secure an NBA team.
Hanson, who is worth over 300 million dollars, is partnering with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Peter and Erik Nordstrom, you got it the department store brothers.
Obviously the Sacramento Kings seem to be a potential target.
And construction on the arena can’t begin until a team has agreed to move to Seattle.
A spokesman for the Maloofs, owners of the Kings, said they wouldn’t comment on the Seattle developments.
“Their comment is the same as before – they’re not going to weigh in on every rumor.” said spokesman Eric Rose.
